    I wanted to share a quick ( sort of) story about the Book at the MGM......I have never bet at the Book at the MGM, it's not my home casino.....but it may become...

    Had some hunches pre football season, Virgins going down to a wedding that knew that I had degenerate Vegas issues and wanted to know if I wanted to place any bets :thumbsup:


    Good friends....:beer:


    I did have some bets...... college and pro bets that I wanted to make pre season and a NASCAR race Saturday night. I'll be down mid October, but had a couple hunches and a couple extra dollars before the pre season games changed the regular season odds.

    They were staying at the MGM so I didn't even bother to have them shop odds, neither are really gamblers...just down for a wedding...... and hiking. Healthy people....what are ya' gonna do ? :kiss:


    Long story shortened....one of my bets was the Raiders to win more than five games. My friend who had never bet at a Book confidently walked up to the window and read off the bets on post it notes I had stuck to the hundys he carried down.

    The writer did all my my bets.....then stopped and looked at one of my bets and said something along the lines of " are you sure ? Before I write this wager maybe call him and make sure this is what he wanted" . "Seriously, the Raiders ?"

    I fully admit it was a hunchy homer fun bet( even though I am from Seattle) ....Raider season was 5 1/2 over under and I took the over. Apparently I had worded my postit note to bet $ line and approximate odds backwards and it didn't make sense so instead of making the wrong bet the writer said why don't ya 'call him and double check.

    My buddy called me, I said yes, it was a hunch and sorry I wrote it down wrong. He went back to same guy, told him my story, laughs all around, drink tickets, and a new connection made. My virgin buddy is a hockey fan and is now hip deep in hockey futures.

    He is now a seasoned sports bettor !

    Anyway....from me, an atta' boy to the staff at the MGM Book, and the patience and thoughts you put in to a new guests gambling experience. You treated a friend of mine like a friend of yours, that is a great way to do business. Trust me....you will make money off him :):):)





    Along with a couple other bets.....
